    He said Tim Robbins, but he Meant Tom Robbins. And I suggest Still Life With Woodpecker.

    Lullaby is definitely the best, followed by Choke. Glad to hear at least some others aren't too scared for Chuck's writing. But I knew robotripp would be in, he's from Austin. ;)

    i was a huge fan of "half asleep in frog pajamas". "fierce invalids home from hot climates" was also very good. i still have "jitterbug perfume" to finish though im having a hard time getting into it....

    has anyone read his latest?

    Villa Incognito is good as well. I still like Still Life a lot more though.

    Choke is probably my favorite fiction. I want to read it once more before the movie comes out. I really wish I had been into Chuck P before seeing Fight Club the movie. I later went on to read the book, but I was annoyed by the fact I had images in my head of Brad Pitt and Edward Norton the whole time I was reading it. I also like how Tyler and Jack met in the book, as opposed to the movie.
